    ahhh, glad to see I'm not the only one [​IMG] , I had a beautiful curly tailed black hen, granted the Yellow feet under the black "skirt" was priceless!!! Called her Broody, she looked like an old brood hen even as a chick...til the day SHE crowed. My bubble popped and I sulked for a few days when Bob (DH) actually took my hand and said, "Oh hunny, you were so cute in denial" :mad: . ( [​IMG] )
    Denial can be a good place, make it what ever you want!
    Sorry for your wake up call, know your not alone.

    Quote:He was crowing up a storm this AM, so I think he is a he, not a she with a complex. [​IMG]

    It is the tiny pea combs on these EE birds that throw me off. They all look like girls to me!![​IMG]

    Well that's a bummer-unless you wanted a roo. I did have a hen that crowed every morning for months, and dh was just anbout to rehome her but she stopped. She must have heard us talking about her being someone's chicken dinner [​IMG]
